  1. Chicago O hare has reached 95 degrees, making it The warmest reading there since September 10, 2013! Like I posted yesterday, mid to upper 90’s have been hard to come by for a few years.
  2. 92/58 here. Hottest temp of the season so far. Again, low dews, breeze, make this heatwave very tolerable. I have 90s in my forecast the rest of the week.
  3. Hit 90 an hour ago per the hourly obs, really puts into perspective how brutally hot summer of 2012 was, we have since struggled to reach even the upper 90’s since then. Although 2012 was a dry heat, hardly any humidity since we had no moisture. Still a historic summer.
  4. Ugh, got 89’ed again yesterday, second time in a week. Today has a higher starting point, already 78 degrees, so our string of 90’s start today. What was once forecasted to be a cooler than normal month, may turn out to be above- to much above for some.
  5. Got 89'ed kind of a bummer. Highest dp reading was 64 earlier this afternoon, felt pretty muggy for awhile. Looks like the best builds back in by the end of the week.
  6. Topped out at 91 yesterday, hottest reading of the year so far, definitely felt like summer. That watseka reading is suspect, they topped out at 96. Edit: 97 degrees.
  7. Impressive stretch of consecutive + monthly anomalies about to come to an end. May will finish cooler than normal, by a few degrees.
  8. In between Decatur and Bement recorded a whopping rainfall total of 6.10". I really hope the farmers around here got everything planted. If it could be a disaster growing season for them.
  9. Warmest temp of the season so far, CMI reporting 85 degrees, and my weather station is reporting 86. Really a text book Mother's Day weekend. Cooking the wife a steak dinner tonight.
  10. Mother's Day weekend is looking top shelf around here. Low 80s and full sun. Ending up getting over 1/2" of rain last night, enough to muddy things up again. A few fields around here haven't been planted yet, I hope an active pattern doesn't evolve in the next week or two, could really put a hamper on the farmers.
  11. Looks like The line is trying to bow out now, I may take a pretty good hit here in an hour. That cell that passed just north of Jacksonville, likely had some large hail with it.
  12. Back to back 80 degree days, I'll take it. Actually reached 83 yesterday, with Springfield reaching 86. Watching this line in Iowa, could get a few boomers, however we definitely do not need the rain.
  13. About as raw of a May Day as you could expect around here, 45 degrees, steady moderate soaking rain, and winds driving said rain. Some of the rural schools are actually dismissing early, due to flooding and rising waters. Isolated spots just south of here have had 8-9" of rain the past week.
  14. It's astonishing. 5 years to develop, 5 months to erase lol. Crazy.
  15. Wow updated drought monitor is pretty nuts. Scattered reports of abnormally dry in the plains and Deep South, with a drought confined to Georgia, Florida, Alabama. This hasn't taken into account the rain over the past few days neither. I've never seen the map this bare before, also it was confirmed this is the lowest amount of the country in drought since 2000
